Earth Day Bulletin Board and FREEBIE

Happy soon to be Earth Day everyone! My first graders have already completed their Earth Day bulletin board! I know, I know, it is not perfect because I had an odd number of students the day we made these and not enough bulletin board! The kiddos still love to find their work EVERY TIME they walk past it!

So, we wrote a letter to Earth and made a promise to do something that would help it. How did I get my littles brains thinking about this? We used the books below to trigger ideas. They did remember a lot of pieces of recycling from kindergarten. They did point out the orange recycle bin we have in our classroom for plastic and glass. They were on it! They had lots of ideas to share! I like the Scholastic books below. If you have to pick just one, use the one in the bottom left hand corner - Why Should I Recycle? 

Would you like to have your class make a promise to the Earth? Then go and grab this freebie! Please be kind and leave feedback :) I love to read it!

Happy Earth Day everyone! Thank you to the wonderfully talented Krista Wallden for the adorable clipart!

April Pick 3

Welcome to April’s Pick 3! How adorable is this month’s graphic?!? Click on each picture to link to the original poster of these great April finds!

How cool is this great idea? Have you seen it yet? It is kind of all over Facebook so I had some trouble finding the original poster. I do know that is came from a gardening website. Great way to be biodegradable during April, our Earth Day month! 

Look at this little guy popping out of his egg! This is from www.kidsoup.com. So cute and looks easy enough for any primary classroom!

From www.craftymorning.com, these bluebird triplets are here to say “Happy Spring”! You know I love things in 3s so these cuties caught my eye right away! And I love the shade of blue tissue paper used!

Check out the rest of the great finds by other awesome bloggers by clicking on the links below!
See you next month!
